Calling all budding photographers and Francophiles – French photograph “Postcard from France” competition!
Every week we love to publish a reader’s photo from France and write about the subject matter. It could be a famous site, something off the beaten track – a shop, museum, landscape, anything that caught your eye and the camera lens – perhaps a gorgeous gateau or a baguette carrying cyclist, maybe a beautiful chateau or a tiny village house… your postcard from France to the world.
Gordon from the US sent us a photo of Chartres, Krystal from Paris sent a photo of the Canal Saint Martin, Angelina’s Tea Room in Paris was the subject of Marissa from San Francisco’s photo. We all love to see a great photograph and here at The Good Life France HQ we love to do a bit of sleuthing and find out more about the images you send.
We’d love you to enter our competition and allow us to use your photo with full credit to you of course.
The best photo, chosen by us (me and my photographer friends that is!) will win a copy of Bobbi French’s “Finding me in France”, the true story of a Canadian psychiatrist who ran away to France. It’s a very funny book and an uplifting story about the trials and tribulations of moving from the big city to the medieval town of Semur-en-Auxois in Burgundy and not speaking French! It is beautifully illustrated with photographs by Bobbi’s art director/designer husband Neil McCulloch. “Finding me in France” is a fun and really enjoyable read with a twist at the end and if you love France and dream of living there – this book will fuel your dreams and make you smile at the same time.
So – don’t be shy, dig out your photos of France and send them in for our great competition!
Photos should be sent original size if possible with your email contact details and a short caption explaining where and when you took it to:
